Ted Klaus Named New HPD President

Honda Performance Development has announced the appointment of Ted Klaus to the position of president, effective April 1.

Klaus, who is currently the vice president of Honda R&D Americas, will succeed Art St. Cyr, who completes a seven-year tenure as president.

“While I’m pleased to go out on a ‘high note’ with last year’s run of 11 race wins and manufacturers’ championship, I will miss the daily contact with everyone in the paddock and garage area, St. Cyr said.

Klaus holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. He joined Honda at the company’s Ohio R&D Center in 1990. After contributing to several company projects, Klaus was named Division Director of Complete Vehicle Performance for Honda R&D Americas in 2010 before later taking on his current responsibilities as vice president of Honda R&D Americas in 2017.
